We are excited to announce the newest division of the Trans-Genre project: Trans-Genre Press. As our community has grown, we’ve decided that we want to take it to the next level. Publishing our artists work not only broadens our audience, but gives us the opportunity to create a strong body of work that continues to serve our mission and community.

We have chosen to launch our press with award-winning writer, Ryka Aoki, by publishing Seasonal Velocities, a collection of her poems, stories, and essays due to release April 2012.

This is truly a collection for all seasons. Aoki’s essays, poems and stories vibrate with honesty and vulnerability, challenging readers to explore our own most wintry memories and springlike transitions.
